You will know the work of Josefina and her professional career as a plastic artist in the world of crafts and textile art. In addition, you will see its main influences and elements of nature that serve as inspiration.

You will start by looking at the materials that you can apply to your embroidery to take advantage of everything you have around and give it a second chance. You will see why Josefina chose the vegetable fiber over other types of fabric and you will choose the vegetable or textile accessory that you want to embroider.

Then you will know all the tools you will need to complete the course project. Thus, you will see the different types of needles with pointed, sewing and embroidery, embroidery and crochet threads, ribbons, pearl threads, wool, scissors and the accessory that you will embroider.

Josefina will explain the basic embroidery points and give you professional advice so you can easily master them. First you will learn the French knot, long and short stitches with different textures and movements, bangs point, how to put firm mostacillas one by one and, finally, you will learn to add any material to your piece, to integrate them and combine them with total freedom.

Finally, you will apply everything learned to work the objects to intervene without rules or limits, giving free rein to your imagination with the sole objective of enjoying the process and creating spectacular pieces.

What is this course's project?

You will embroider a wallet and earrings made of vegetable fiber or any other textile material that you want to intervene. The idea is to recycle something that you no longer use and give a second life or value to that object with embroidery.
